After the Cubs lost earlier in the day, 6-4 to the Florida Marlins, the Brewers could have once again climbed to within 1-game with a win. But they went out and committed five errors and lost to the San Diego Padres 9-5 in the first of a four game series at Miller Park.
Rickie Weeks homered twice and Ryan Braun added one long ball, but it was Braun that led the error parade, committing 3 of the 5 himself. It's the second straight day that the Cubs lost, only to be followed by a Brewers defeat.
Dale Sveum served as the Brewers interim manager after Ned Yost was suspended for 1-game, which he served last night.
Chris Capuano pitches the 2nd game of the series tonight against San Diego's Greg Maddux.
